Franciscan Renewal Center Tour

Date: 3/14/2019

One hour tour of Franciscan Renewal Center covers both the inside of the Church and the grounds. $20 includes the tour and buffet lunch in the cafeteria. Reservations can be made through this website. Deadline for RSVP is March 5. 

Even though lunch is at 12:00, we felt everyone would enjoy strolling around the lovely gardens at this beautiful time of year.

Franciscan Renewal Center website: Rest for the Body and Renewal for the Soul: The Franciscan Renewal Center – or “Casa de Paz y Bien” – has existed since 1951 as a place for spiritual retreats, wellness, worship, healing and more. It predates the affluent Town of Paradise Valley – with resorts, mansions, pools, paved roads, and all. That a dusty, former dude ranch would become a God-filled spiritual retreat center and that the Franciscan friars –grounded in vows of poverty – would become surrounded by some of the area’s wealthiest residents speaks to nothing less than the astounding “coincidence of opposites;” that which unifies rather than divides.
